Welcome to the American Photo photo blog! We colorize black & white photos for museums, educators, media . . . and families like yours.

A visit to our website gets you started:

Summer is here, and we’re on a Surfin’ Safari back to the year 1962. Here’s a brand new Rock & Roll band from Hawthorne, California in Los Angeles’ South Bay. They call themselves The Beach Boys, and they range in age from 13 to 21.

This photo is from the teen documentary “One Man’s Challenge”, produced by Dale Smallin, and featuring the young Beach Boys performing their song, “Surfin’ Safari” at the Azusa Teen Club.

Due to the nature of the original film we captured the image from – the clarity isn’t pristine. But, what a cool piece of Rock & Roll history!

At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!

We just can’t stop there . . . and so, we’re making the original video footage available for you – right here . . . right now!

And since American Photo Colorizing’s “Redwood Studio” is just a few blocks from the blue Pacific in the heart of Southern California – we send out a mighty COWABUNGA to all our local Hodads!
